NOTHER SKI SEASON IS COMING TO A CLOSE – and it was a strange winter, indeed. A cycle of cold, snow, then rain. But much music was had, and more will be had at Fernival. It’s time to bring the dancing out of the bars again, and out into the crisp mountain air.
Thankfully, Fernie Alpine Resort isn’t resurrecting cheesy bands from Canada’s musical past at this year’s season closer. Although both Vancouver’s Daniel Wesley and Calgary’s the Dudes both have careers that span a decade or more, neither are as long in the tooth as last year’s Chilliwack or 2012’s April Wine.
